ALBANY, GA (WALB) –The 25 year old stage play Beauty Shop comes to town next week. It's been shown in Los Angles, New York and next Saturday, you can see it right here in Albany.
Beauty Shop was so successful on Broadway, it beat out Cats for the number one position. If you've seen Beauty Shop with Queen Latifah, or Hair Show with Monique, this is the play it was based on.
It deals with day to day life, that women face every time they want a new hair-do. With so many different women in and out of the beauty shop, it can be a pretty unpredictable place.
"The characters are just all over the place, and my character tries to keep everything together," said star of the Beauty Shop Doris Garrett.
However, in Shelly's Garret's Beauty shop, you never know what to expect once you sit down in that chair. "Ladies know what goes on in a beauty shop. They gossip, talk about men, and sometimes talk about each other," said Beauty Shop Playwright Shelly Garrett.
"It's basically like a regular beauty shop. We talk about different things just like in a real shop," said Doris Garrett.
This 25 year old play was born after Shelly Garrett came in one day to relax. "Basically when he was at the salon, things happened. He thought it would be a great idea to write about things that naturally happen," said Doris Garrett. @
His play was so successful, it had three movie spins offs, The Beauty Shop, Hair show and The Salon. "It was real strange. All in the same year, different companies were contacting me about doing the movie Beauty Shop," said Shelly Garrett.
"All of those movies were based on Shelly's stage play. He rewrites his plays all the time," said Doris Garrett.
Even Tyler Perry was motivated to write, after watching this show over 15 years ago. "Tyler Perry said He saw the play three times when he was living in New Orleans. It's really inspiring," said Shelly Garrett.
Come on in and wash the stress of the day away and enjoy the beauty shop for all it has to offer. Tickets are selling fast. Depending on where the seat, you could end up paying $25 to $35 for a seat.
The show starts promptly at 8:00pm Saturday January 15th, at the Albany Municipal Auditorium. There will also be a matinee showing, Sunday January 16th at 3:00pm.
